The first-ever NBA play-in tournament at the end of a regular season (as much as you can call this season regular) starts with a showstopper: Warriors at Lakers.

In this latest PBT Podcast, we delve into why the Lakers are no lock to win that game, plus look at the other play-in games: Spurs at Grizzlies, and in the East Washington at Boston and Charlotte at Indiana.

From there, Dan Feldman and I look at all the matchups in the first round, including why the Bucks facing the Miami team that eliminated them a year ago is our favorite first-round series to watch.
